Mancio's News Round Up: We're Not Done Yet

Mancio's News Round Up: We're Not Done Yet



Roberto Mancini has clarified a few things since returning from an urgent family visit to Italy. It's clear more City signings are imminent...

There has been talk that the exciting Mario Balotelli's transfer to SportCity from Inter Milan had hit the rails over agent fuelled wage demands but the dapper City gaffer backed up Super Mario's agent's earlier claims that the deal is still on despite British hack tomfoolery. Mancio hinted at City and Internazionale still having a deal to agree upon and that a part ex with Premier League lightweight Da Souza Robinho has not been discussed:

'We are speaking with Inter Milan and we will try to get an agreement but Robinho has not been mentioned...I am still hopeful. We have time, but we will not pay too high a price.'

Of Robinho, a reconciliation, nightmare for the Brazilian of being excluded from the City Squad 25 or maybe worse still having to face English league defences again? Mancio said:

'I worked with him for one month, then he decided to go back to Brazil. He said he wanted to stay at home so he could prepare to play for Brazil at the World Cup. There was no pressure from me but now I must speak with him because it is very difficult for him to stay at Santos...'

With the big kick off closing fast the City boss continued:

'...there was no pressure from me but now I must speak with him because it is very difficult for him to stay at Santos.'

Of the upcoming 25 Man Squad streamlining at City, The Gaffer had this to say:

'We have spent a lot of money on good, young players. I am happy about that. They are all top players but you also have to take into account that when Manchester City try to sign someone, the price is not normal. We want to improve and we want to improve quickly. For this reason we have to buy....having so many players is not a problem yet because the matches haven't started yet. After next Saturday it will become more difficult. From 31st August we can only have 25 players and at the moment I think we have 31. Someone may have to stay outside of the list.'

Desperate hack shite-stirrery has also gone into overdrive over the alledged future of Emmanuel Adebayor, the newly squad numbered City Number 9, who is supposed to want to leave and go to Juventus:

'The things about Emmanuel are not true. Absolutely not.'

In other news, City's free entry to Eastlands Family Fun Day starring a happy go lucky 'wantaway' Ade was an outstanding success on Friday with close to 9,000 fans braving the soaking East Manchester elements to welcome City's new signings and World Cup stars to the club.

Valencia, you are next.

Interesting selection Arse. We've jettisoned Petrov, Sylvinho and Garrido already, too. Santa Cruz and Bellamy also likely to go.

Arseniger - two of them players are GKs that won't be in 25, M.Johnson won't be in 25 because he will not be fit for a few months yet. That leaves 5 players to cut. Imo that will be Logan, Etuhu, Caceido, Santa Cruz and maybe Onouha, unfortunately.

I will be happy if Bellamy stays so that Harry Reface will be stuck. He is waiting to land City players like Bellamy, SWP, Ireland. I hope he misses out on all of them

That makes two of us Arseniger. Meant to say in last post that Vidal doesn't need purgeing, he's still considered under21.

Stuart Taylor will definitely stay, we just extended his contract and he's our third goal keeper. Gunnar Nielsen has already been loaned out to Tranmere Rovers. My best guess for the leavers (incl loans) will have to be: Caicedo, Santa Cruz, Vidal, Etuhu, Ireland, Nedum, Logan and Robinho. Mancini loves Zab, played more than any other player last season and he's versatile. Also I think Jo might be given a second chance...He's never played for Mancini and his form in pre-season has been quite good so the gaffer might have been impressed + he's young and could develop still.

Mancio is no mug and I am sure will make big decisions with ease. With him at the controls, I feel confident. For the first time in my City life I fear no team.

No way will in be Nedum - he is in the 25 - but the players to go should be Logan Etuhu Jo Cacedo and either Ireland or Santa Cruz - on the assumption of Balotelli coming in.If Milner comes in then bothy Ireland and Santa Cruz would be excluded.
